Some fun photos of concepts little seen in this part of this world are still floating out of Madrid from our man, Alberto. These two come from Indian automaker Tata Motors and according to Alberto are nice departures from the brand's current style, perhaps that's because they were styled by the Italian design studio IDEA. The first is a seven-passenger crossover conveniently called the Crossover. The second concept called the Cliffrider is a five-passenger sport utility truck called the Cliffrider that features a bed in the back big enough for a few bikes or other urban gear. While the styling may not cause any of our jaded eyes to do a double take, Alberto reports it's a leap forward for Tata.

      Laugh all you want about TATA,
      but what about the Cayman S ?? lol

      The Crossover looks like a "marriage" of a Suzuki to a Hyundai, while the Cliffrider looks like a "marriage" of a Lexus GS to a Hyundai.
      I'm not really crazy about the vertical slits for lights idea, and wonder if they might work a little bit better if they were horizontal slits, instead.

      I dunno, Howard ... I think vertical slits always go better with Tatas (I'm sorry, I just couldn't let that one go by.)

      Not quite new; the Cliffrider was at Geneva in March, and the cleverly named Crossover showed up at Geneva in 2005.

      while it looks better than what they have made before, it still looks like it's got grill from a honda/acura or a mazda, from the side it looks like a honda stream carbon copy with elements from the ford focus mk1 and mitsubishi grandis thrown in and the rear lights have been nicked from a cadillac. oh and the steering wheel comes from a volvo. plus the cliffrider looks a bit like a lexus rx with a botched end

      "Pair of nice Tatas debuts in Madrid."
      Gee Mr. Neff, you weren't trying to bait us were you?
